Default Which ring mounts

I'm building a 6.5 Grendel and am going to mount a Konus 6.5x25x40 on it. I know they are the 30mm rings but I am confused Which highth of rings I need. Medium or high or extra high? Medium says it will fit up to 40 mm.Which this scope is.. Just wondered what others were using.
Thanks

I take it your building the Grendel on an AR15 platform. There are several ways you can go about it.
The easiest would be use a 1pc mount like a Burris P.E.P.R. scope mount or use an extended riser to mount standard scope rings on. It's hard to mount a scope forward enough without using these types of mounts on the upper rail.

I have a Burris mount on my 458 SOCOM,but I prefer to use a riser/rings.This type of mount raises the scope up too far off the rifle for my taste.





I used a Weaver Extended riser and medium Burris Signature Zee rings on my LR-260 AR10.

This is a 30mm scope in forward offset rings. It is the same height as the irons if they were on there.

you would need medium 30 mm rings. when you reach about 50mm then it would be high rings.
